  • This is off the beaten path. You will need a vehicle to get there. You can hike through this area to get to the remote beaches in the north end of Culebra. The hike is worth it; but, not for the faint...  more »

  • Amazing - Untouched beautiful beaches and hiking with all kinds of wildlife everywhere. This needs to be preserved for future generations to enjoy. Took a charter with Captain Louis Padron out to the island. Had a great time! This is a must do if you're in Culebra.
  • Absolutely s must visit. The beaches are a must see. Do take the rent a jeep, do fly over (ferry is locals first and not guaranteed) and do spend a night as you'll find you need longer than a day. Happy get-a-away....
  • Culebra is amazing, purchased a tour on a boat, word of caution...ride is extremely bumpy and made me sea sick, take a life jacket since the boat docks away from actual beach and you'll have to swim to it. Other than that, the swim is worth it, good snorkeling available right off the beach, water is warm, perfect for swimming, clean and not crowded.
  • Amazing area. Beautiful beaches and amazing snorkeling.
  • This is a beautiful place to visit and see for yourself.
